ESE Equestrian Hall of Fame

The Eastern States Exposition Equestrian Hall of Fame was established in 2014 to recognize individuals and equines who have demonstrated excellence in their discipline, made significant achievements in the competition world and have made outstanding contributions to the sport and equestrian community.


Those few individuals or equines whose achievements and contributions to the sport have set them apart will be considered for induction to the Eastern States Exposition Hall of Fame. Each year three "nominations" for the Hall of Fame will be considered. The inductee will then be chosen by "The People's Choice" via voting throughout the equestrian community. Individuals and equines can be considered for nomination posthumously.

Nominations are open to actively competing or retired horses as well as individuals who have been affiliated with Eastern States Exposition at year-round shows or Big E horse shows.

The Eastern States Exposition Equestrian Hall of Fame Presentation will take place in the Coliseum during The Big E.
